PowerColor Japan has printed the primary image of what’s believed to be the corporate’s upcoming Hellhound Radeon RX 7900-series graphics card. The board will complement PowerColor’s Crimson Satan-branded Radeon RX 7900 boards that the corporate teased some time in the past, although the merchandise will seemingly be positioned otherwise.
There are three issues that instantly stand out within the photograph of PowerColor’s new Hellhound add-in board (AIB). There is a very refined three slot cooling system with two radiators and a number of warmth pipes, two eight-pin PCIe auxiliary energy connectors, and blue LEDs (or RGB LEDs set to blue).
Large coolers will seemingly be frequent for AMD’s Radeon RX 7900-based graphics playing cards, so we aren’t stunned to see the one right here. In the meantime, contemplating the truth that PowerColor outfitted its Radeon RX 6900 XT and RX 6950 XT graphics playing cards with three eight-pin PCIe energy connectors, it’s a bit sudden to see a Hellhound Radeon RX 7900-series graphics card with two eight-pin connectors. There may be, although, a doable rationalization for this.
“A Hellhound is born with fur as robust as armor and claws as sharp as a razor,” the tweet by PowerColor reads. “Its eyes burn at nighttime and observe prey with precision. It was as soon as a preventing canine owned by a hero. However your bravery didn’t go unnoticed by the Crimson Satan, and it gave you a chance to turn out to be Hell’s Keeper.”
Usually, PowerColor makes use of Crimson Satan and Liquid Satan manufacturers for its range-topping graphics playing cards, whereas the Hellhound model is reserved for efficiency mainstream boards in addition to for merchandise aimed toward modders in search of trendy AIBs. With none doubt, the PowerColor Hellhound Radeon RX 7900-series card seems spectacular. However to differentiate between its top-of-the-range Satan-branded graphics playing cards and Hellhound-branded choices, PowerColor might have restricted the variety of energy connectors on the latter. This can in fact restrict the facility price range and overclocking potential of the product, however that also needs to be certain that its cooling system is sufficient for this half.
What stays to be seen is whether or not PowerColor will supply Radeon RX 7900 XTX below its Hellhound model, or will it promote the top-of-the-range card solely below Crimson Satan and Liquid Satan logos and restrict the Hellhound model for lesser Radeon RX 7900 XT choices.
AMD plans to start out promoting its reference AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT and Radeon RX 7900 XTX merchandise, that are set to compete within the ranks of the finest graphics playing cards for gaming, on December 13. At this level, it is unclear whether or not all of AMD’s AIB companions will be capable of roll out their customized Radeon RX 7900-series merchandise by that date. However contemplating corporations like Asus and PowerColor are already testing their new Radeons, we’ll seemingly see a minimum of some customized choices by mid-December.
